Lake Placid Craft Brewing “India Pale Ale” Review (#084)

Lake Placid Craft Brewing
“India Pale Ale”

Lake Placid, New York

From The Brewery:

This tribute to West Coast-style American IPAs is loaded with hops from start to finish balanced softly by a touch of malty sweetness.

Style: India Pale Ale
Color: Deep Copper
ABV: 6.8%
Availability: Year round

Review:

Appearance: I poured this copper orange colored ale into a Sam Adam’s Perfect Pint. The white head settled in thick, starting off at over an inch, then falling to half that for most of the beer.

Smell: Pungent hops on the nose; wet earth with a little floral. Yeast and a bit of malt on the back end.

Taste: Strong; a nice blend of spicier hops and the sweeter malt. A nice lingering bitterness on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium weight, nice level of carbonation, keeping the IPA lively.

Drinkability/Palitability: High.

Notes: I drank this while filming an introduction video for this blog. I am starting a series of videos and I wanted one that was a quick intro. That will be up shortly. A nice sized IPA with good balance and a great finish. I can see the West Coast influence in this one. Enjoyed it enough to pick up another offering from Lake Placid; their Ubu Ale
